RGS students take part in a diverse range of sporting activities in and out of school; Georgina and Jack Clarkson being a prime example. In late July, Georgina was the individual winner of the Pony Club Area 2 Intermediate Dressage Championships and she was also the individual winner of the Intermediate Eventing Championships. This meant she qualified for the National Championships which were held at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire 15/18th August. She rode amazingly well and came 10th individually in each of the Dressage and Eventing competitions. This is an enormous achievement for someone so young!  

In addition, Georgina’s brother Jack qualified for the Pony Club National Tetrathlon Championships with a team of three other boys and they went on to be placed 2nd overall in the Junior Boys’ competition nationally. Well done Jack and Georgina!
